Hi!  I'm Corrie, owner, artist and entrepreneur here at Inspired By U.  From back as far as I can remember, I've had a love for seeing things as the can be and bringing that vision to life.  I could spend hours with any kind of medium... pottery, pencils, pastels, paints... whatever I could get my hands on to create something new and wonderful.  There is something magical about making things beautiful.

I chose the name Inspired By U because I want our customers to play a part in the end product. We love to capture our clients vision, and then help to bring that vision to life.  Giving someone the home they've always dreamed of fills us up. I get just as excited as my customers to see the transformation take place!  We love being able to use the gifts we’ve been given to bring great joy to others.

In addition to running our painting business, I run a Facebook group called Kitchen Cabinet Painting Experts where I'm able to impact people and help them grow alongside my moderators.  We also have a mastermind group where we share knowledge to stay on the cutting edge with the latest technology so we can serve our customers at the highest level.  

In order to help the DIY community, we  created a private label waterborne premium Italian coating line called Inspired By U Coatings.  These coatings are available for purchase in our retail shop and online at and we are thrilled to get these cutting-edge products out to the furniture industry!

We also help the professional refinishers by offering classes throughout the year to add value to their business.  Our goal is to create a positive impact and elevate the refinishing industry, and these classes have helped us help others across the Nation.  If you're a refinisher looking to learn and grow, be sure to check out our upcoming classes.  

I'm so excited about the future as I continue to allow God to lead and give him the Glory every step of the way.

Thanks for stopping by!
